The Royal Family

'Ello, Marvin!

Turns out Prince George and Princess Charlotte have another little furry sibling named Marvin!

We know what you're thinking… Why wasn't he in the family portraits?! Poor Marvin.

During a visit with school children at the new Magic Garden playground at Hampton Court Palace on Wednesday, Kate Middleton told the kids about the family's little pet.

Nine-year-old Darcey said of the conversation:

"[She] said she had a hamster, and [Princess] Charlotte really likes it because the whiskers always tickle her face."

Awww! So cute.

In another adorable moment during the outing, one child asked the chairman of the Historic Royal Palaces Rupert Gavin who the Duchess of Cambridge was:

"Then the child said, 'Ooh, are you the princess?'"

To which Kate said simply:

"Just call me Kate."

Goals!!

P.S. Small animals, like hamsters and guinea pigs, make great family pets! If you're interested in adopting one for yourself or a family, just remember they deserve the same care you'd give a cat or dog. When children learn how to properly handle the fragile animals, everyone is happier for it!
